On the back of the extremely successful 2021 European WASZP Games and return to international competition, we are proud to announce the WASZP_X will join the swarm and be part of the WASZP family.
The WASZP_X is the latest product out of the WASZP factory. This boat will provide the start point of the most affordable and accessible foiling pathway in the sport, minimising the total customer lifetime spend over the sailing journey. The class will use the same hull as the WASZP with the following differences:
5.8m sail to suit smaller sailors – (recommended weight 30-45kgs)
6.9m sail to progress in the class – (recommended weight 45-65kgs)
Lightweight rig for easy righting and stability when sailing
Curved wingbars increase stability and make capsize recovery easier for smaller sailors
Easy and affordable transition through the pathway to the senior WASZP Class.
Recommended minimum sailor weight of 30-35kg
Recommended age 11-14+
Added safety features to create a forgiving environment for kids to learn to foil.
Using all the current WASZP Racehub infrastructure, the WASZP_X will be able to mobilise a global racing circuit extremely quickly. We intend to include the WASZP_X class at the 2022 International WASZP Games in (Lake Garda, Italy) as its own class. After this event, we aim to include the WASZP_X at future major events as a stand-alone event prior to the Senior WASZP Class 8.2m. We have many coaches in the WASZP class already, and the opportunity for them to coach the juniors before their own regatta means we keep more coaches actively racing and motivated.
